.. A grand jury investigates , first , what happened . Then , once one is fairly sure that they have presented a sufficient case , then the prosecutor asks the grand jury to hand up an indictment , or not . They may not . They can vote a ” True Bill ” [an indictment] on the proposed charges , or ” no True Bill , ” thus clearing an individual …

.. that is something that many people do not understand . They understand the trial court process . But , they do not understand the grand jury process , or what it is supposed to do , or achieve …
